Blendon Shooting Police Body Cam Released
Body camera footage has been released by Blendon Township, showing the moments leading up to and after the fatal shooting of 21-year-old Ta’Kiya Young.
Young was shot once and died from her injuries, while the child she was carrying did not survive.
Blendon Township previously said Young and several other people shoplifted items from a store, after which a store employee flagged down officers who were in the parking lot on an unrelated call. In the video, a store employee can be heard telling an officer that Young had shoplifted.
The video shows Young’s vehicle moving forward, hitting the second officer.
